Todd Hayen, psychotherapist, Welcome

Todd Hayen, PhD, psychotherapist

Sometimes we may find it almost impossible to cope with the challenges in our relationships, our work, with our children, our families or even in our own bodies. Depression can overwhelm us, debilitating conflicts with our partners or our children may overshadow our sense of well being. More serious issues affecting our lives may also be present.

In this complicated process of living, we develop our own unique way of being. Each of us strives for enjoyment and satisfaction in our relationships, our work and our creative endeavors using life skills we have acquired from our culture, religious orientation, family upbringing, education and personal experiences. Sometimes our way of being doesn’t support our goals and desires, and we need help in understanding our feelings and adapting our thinking and behavior to better serve us and make our goals more attainable and as a result, bring more meaning and fulfillment into our lives.

As a therapist and counseller practicing in the Aurora, ON area, I help my clients find a way of being that better equips them to cope with life's formidable challenges as well as bringing increased enjoyment, satisfaction and purpose into their lives
